11:16pm
warmer than normal but not nearly at many as we saw last week. tampa at 67 degrees. phoenix at 882. most of the country starting to trpped down into a cooler and also very quiet weather pattern for the time being. here is where temperatures stand at this hour. still 28 degrees at manassas. we have not dropped too much there. frederick, you have, though, down to 28 degrees. gait thusburg at 30, winchester at 30. i don't think it's going to get too much colder than this because we did have a deck of clouds coming in. that should protect us from getting too much older. you can see from the northwest, 32, down in south raleigh, 41. now, these are not the biggest clouds that we have seen and i don't believe they'll produce any kind of precipitation. they might be up there to protect some of these areas from getting colder. watching the beginning of the storm system that will move over to the coast. i know you hear the word coastal and you think, what's up with that? this is harmless for us and it
11:17pm
is blocked by high pressure. so that won't do too much except sending some high clouds in our area. fairly set across the nation a little bit of light moisture here in the middle part of the country but nothing that is going to make anybody have any difficult travel plans, say, even into the end of the week or the weekend. tonight, we are dropping to 36 degrees in the city. we have known many places already below 32 degrees in the suburb. definitely a cold start tomorrow morning. tomorrow afternoon, almost the same opportunities we had today. 49 degrees. the only different is not quite as sunny for part of the day. we had some clouds that will be coming on through and the northeast winds will have to build autopsy little bit of cloud cover as we. a chilly start at 8:00 in the morning. 48 degrees. by noon, climbing to 46 degrees with a mix of clouds and sun and we keep that going into 4:00 with the temperature of 49 degrees. still trying to kept showers
11:18pm
off the coast tomorrow. it will do a good job and then high pressure slides into place for our friday to give us a lot of sunshine. into the weekend, here is another coastal that developed, not the one tomorrow but a second one that will develop. we'll site it down in the aim region saturday and sunday. might get closer, might be stronger. we think it will probably affect eastern suburbs especially but we'll keep a chance of showers in here on sundays. spotty, maybe a few showers but saturday will be the drier day this weekend. the best chance of seeing those showers on sunday and into monday will be east of d.c. your fox 5 accu weather forecast, chilly tomorrow. a little bit of a rebound friday and sat day spotty showers in the forecast for saturday and sunday. if the high pressure increases, that may take some precipitations out to sea and
